1. Coffee: The most classic classic, the coffee flavor tastes like lightly sweetened milky coffee. It’s the pick for the coffee lover looking for a treat.
2. Mocha: Add chocolate to the coffee flavor, and you have the Starbucks Mocha frappuccino bottle, an age-old pairing for a good reason. It’s also available in a light version, which is lower in calories and caffeine.
3. Caramel: For those with a sweet tooth, go with Caramel. The hint of bittersweet coffee keeps it just this side of being cloying.
4. Vanilla: A classic for a good reason, the Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino bottle is gently floral without being overpowering. Like the Mocha, it also comes in a lighter version.
5. White Chocolate Mocha: The White Chocolate Mocha is like a sweeter version of the plain coffee flavor with a hint of buttery white chocolate flavor. A surprise hit!

6.Mocha Coconut: Adding coconut to the standard mocha gives this one a tropical appeal that makes it especially tasty in the summer months.
7. Pumpkin Spice: The flavor that needs no introduction, unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past ten years. A fall favorite with sweet pumpkin and warm spices.
8. Brown Butter Caramel: This is a definite step up from the plain caramel, with the brown butter adding a decadent and nutty layer.
9. Almond Milk Mocha: Just like the classic Mocha but suitable for a vegan diet. The almond milk doesn’t have a huge impact on the flavor.
10. Almond Milk Vanilla: As with the Almond Milk Mocha, the Almond Milk Vanilla is similar in flavor to the standard Vanilla but without the dairy.
11. S’mores: This marshmallow-and-chocolate treat is a great buy given that the S’mores Frappuccino is currently unavailable in stores! Top it with a dollop of marshmallow fluff and some graham cracker crumbs for best results.
12. Dulce de Leche: Dulce de Leche is essentially caramelized milk, so picture caramel with an even creamier flavor (1). Yum!

13. Chocolate Churro: The Passport Series features international desserts, but stays in pretty familiar flavor territory. The Chocolate Churro is a delicious mix of mocha and cinnamon.
14. Caramel Flan: The Caramel Flan is very similar to the Dulce de Leche, but they’ve managed to incorporate the eggy richness unique to a flan.
15. Hazelnut Tiramisu: Tiramisu has too many flavor layers to capture in a drink, but this is a delicious mix of hazelnut, coffee, and chocolate – no matter what you call it.
Splash of Cold Brew

16. Caramelized Vanilla Honey: The Splash of Cold Brew series is just what you expect, with a bit of cold brew added to each bottle for a more pronounced coffee flavor (2). It really pays off in the Caramelized Vanilla Honey, keeping it from being overly sweet.
17. Salted Dark Chocolate: Sweet-and-salty fans rejoice, this is your frappuccino!
18. Toasted White Chocolate: The hint of smoky flavor here is wonderful, taking it from something sweet and simple to something complex that keeps you coming back.

Whipping out a blender isn’t always a practical option, though, so here’s the hack. Freeze the bottle for 2 to 3 hours – not so long that it turns into a solid block of ice. Take it out of the freezer and give it a good shake. Like magic, it forms a perfect creamy frappuccino. You can even top it with whipped cream and a drizzle of sauce.
